Though Marvel‘s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will only be released in the US this weekend (1st May), it has already grossed over $200 million overseas. We’ve seen the film too, but we will refrain from posting any potential spoilers here.
However, a new rumour that surfaced online is suggesting that we might have missed out on a lot of scenes in the movie because it was reported that all the scenes that didn’t make it into the theatrical release will be featured in the Blu-Ray disc instead, including an alternate ending.
That’s right, everyone. There’s another ending that may or may not change the whole movie.
The report originated from Screen Crush after receiving an e-mail sent by Amazon.co.uk about a pre-order of the “Age of Ultron” Blu-Ray. According to the e-mail, the disc will consist of an extended version of the film, as well as an alternate ending.
Truth be told, we somehow knew that the studio already came up with an alternate ending because director Joss Whedon previously told Collider in an interview the disc will include deleted scenes.
There are many other theories that surround its ending, one of which revolves around the death of a character. Some assumed that the character may actually make out of the sequel alive, but we thought it was highly unlikely because this may affect the studio’s upcoming films.
Our best guess is that the alternate ending will revolve around Captain Marvel, who was included in the early draft of the script. The director said he already shot visual FX plates to have Captain Marvel fly into the Avengers HQ at the end of the movie. However, the idea was ditched by the studio because the rushed introduction may affect the potential impact of the character.
Also, the mysterious woman that appeared in the 2nd trailer of the movie did not show up in the final cut at all. Thus, there were a lot of scenes that really didn’t make sense in the theatrical release. Perhaps the extended version will explain Thor’s brief disappearance in the film as well.
According to Slash Film, Disney Theatrical and Home Video had no comment about the report while Amazon added a note to the “Avengers” pre-order page.
The note is as follows:
